Transition metal hydride complexes of the type trans-[(dppe)(2)Fe(H)(RCN)][BF4] (dppe = Ph2PCH2CH2PPh2; R = CH3, CH3CH2, CH3CH2CH2, CH2=CH, C6H5, p-CH3C6H4CH2) have been prepared by substitution of the eta(2)-H-2 ligand in trans-[(dppe)(2)Fe(H)(eta(2)-H-2)][BF4] with the corresponding nitriles. Protonation of these hydride complexes using HBF4.Et2O gives the dicationic dihydrogen complexes trans-[(dppe)(2)Fe(eta(2)-H-2)(RCN)][BF4](2). The intact nature of the H-H bond in these derivatives has been established by the observation of substantial H-D coupling constants for the eta(2)-HD isotopomers and the short spin lattice relaxation times (T-1) for the eta(2)-HD ligand. The H-2 ligand in these complexes is not substantially elongated indicating reduced or almost no Fe-H-2 back-bonding. The bound H-2 ligand is quite labile, upon its loss, one of the BF4- counterions binds with the metal to afford trans-[(dppe)(2)Fe(BF4)(RCN)][BF4] derivative. Reactivity behaviour of the dihydrogen complexes toward Lewis bases such as acetonitrile, triethylamine, and piperidine has been studied. The X-ray structure of trans-[(dppe)(2)Fe(H)(CH3CH2CH2CN)][BF4] has been determined.
